If You Know What I Mean
no it was not a big knife. it was a small pocket knife. it doesn't matter if it's a knife or not. ANYTHING even a movement can look like a weapon and it's more than enough to give cop a reason to shoot you. majority of cop shooting cases? nobody wins. cops don't get charged.Yeah, he was carrying a big knife and couldn't hear the cop's instruction so that's why he got shot.
now you understand why it's not advisable to move without cop's instruction?
case closed. $1.5 million settlement. no charge was filed against Officer Birk but he resigned.What's up with the case? Was the cop fired? Was there a court trial or a settlement?
whatever happened to officer is not a concern in here because it doesn't matter anymore once you're dead. so you might want to take a few measures if you do not want to get shot such as printing out a big deaf card.
